What the bath bomb is made of

Bath bombs are usually made from three key ingredients: baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch. Often, bath bombs also include dyes and perfumes, and sometimes they have Epsom salt.

The fizziness of bath bombs comes from the chemical reactions that happen when baking soda and citric acid come into contact with water. Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, has the chemical formula NaHCO3. In water, baking soda quickly dissolves, and the positively charged sodium (Na+) breaks apart from negatively charged bicarbonate (HCO3-).
